Speaker: Peter Symes, Director, Standards & Engineering, SMPTE
As you may know, SMPTE is the premier standards development body for the motion imaging industry. What you may not know, however, is how those standards are developed.
During our next SMPTE Standards webcast, guest speaker, Peter Symes, SMPTE's Director, Standards & Engineering will discuss the process behind development of SMPTE Standards. Mr. Symes will explain why standards are important and who is involved in the standards development process. You will also learn how and why you too can be involved.
